You do not need to fast for an HbA1c diabetes test. This test measures the average level of sugar attached to the haemoglobin in your blood over the last 10 - 12 weeks. This means that it is not affected by anything you have just eaten.
Other tests for diabetes, such as blood glucose and insulin do require a fasting sample. If you order one of these tests we will make sure that you receive instructions about fasting before you collect your sample.
